Cine Gear Expo LA is coming back, in person June 9-12, with its hallmark exhibits, film competition, seminars, screenings, and world class hobnobbing. It's the place to reconnect with colleagues, friends, and collaborators in the casual LA Cine Gear style at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The downtown LA location is a breath of fresh air with soaring ceilings, bright airy spaces inside, and outdoors exhibits too, with lots of on-site parking in addition to ample public transportation. Next door is the LA Live! entertainment complex with theatres, the Crypto.com Arena, the word-famous Grammy Museum, top restaurants, and hotels.
Thursday, June 9 marks the official opening. The event starts at noon with the Film Series Competition, which will extend throughout the day with screenings in the Student Short, Indy Short, Commercial and Music Video categories.
Also, on Thursday, the exhibition halls will open at 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. This year guests can meet with hundreds of exhibitors from technology companies worldwide. From Arri to Zeiss, this is LA's best opportunity to check out the latest equipment and services including, cameras, optics, lighting, grip, support, motion control, stabilizers, virtual stage LEDs, robotics, streaming, monitors, filters, camera cars, cases and other tools of the trade.
